SECTION 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE
    INHALATION of vapor or spray mist.
    EYE or SKIN contact with the product, vapor or spray mist.
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE
    EYES; Irritation
    SKIN:  Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause irritation.
INHALATION:  Irritation of the upper respiratory system. In a confined area
vapors in high concentration may cause headache, nausea, or dizziness.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE
    Redness and itching or burning sensation may indicate eye or excessive skin
exposure.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
    None generally recognized.
CANCER INFORMATION
    For complete discussion of toxicology data refer to Section 11.

SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EYES: Flush eyes with large amounts of water for 15 minutes.
    Get medical attention.
SKIN; Wash affected area thoroughly with soap and water.
    Remove contaminated clothing and launder before re-use.
INHALATION; If affected, remove from exposure. Restore breathing.
    Keep warm and quiet.
INGESTION; Do not induce vomiting.
    Get medical attention immediately.

SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FLASH POINT                   LEL        UEL
    Not Applicable           N.A.        N.A.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
    Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical, Foam
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS
    Closed containers may explode (due to the build-up of pressure) when  exposed
to extreme heat.
    During emergency conditions overexposure to decomposition products may cause a
health hazard. Symptoms may not be immediately apparent. Obtain medical
attention.
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES
    Full protective equipment including self-contained breathing apparatus should
be used.
    Water spray may be ineffective. If water is used, fog nozzles are preferable.
Water may be used to cool closed containers to prevent pressure build-up and
possible auto ignition or explosion when exposed to extreme heat.

SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED
    Remove all sources of ignition. Ventilate the area.
    Remove with inert absorbent.

SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STORAGE CATEGORY
    Not Available
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORAGE
    Contents under pressure. Do not puncture, incinerate, or expose to temperature
above 120F. Heat from sunlight, radiators, stoves, hot water, and other heat
sources could cause container to burst. Do not take internally. Keep out of the
reach of children.

SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN USE
    Use only with adequate ventilation.
    Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid breathing vapor and spray mist.
    Wash hands after using.
VENTILATION
    Local exhaust preferable. General exhaust acceptable if the exposure to
materials in Section 2 is maintained below applicable exposure limits.
Refer to OSHA Standards 1910.94, 1910.107, 1910.108.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
    If personal exposure cannot be controlled below applicable limits by
ventilation, wear a properly fitted organic vapor/particulate respirator
approved by NIOSH/MSHA for protection against materials in Section 2.
PROTECTIVE GLOVES
    None required for normal application of aerosol products where minimal skin
contact is expected. For long or repeated contact, wear chemical resistant
gloves.
EYE PROTECTION
    Wear safety spectacles with unperforated side shields.
